ago that we will hear from president obama. he will be speaking in about a half an hour from now on negotiatings over a debt deal 0, just about 11 hours left now until washington's failure to reach a deal would trigger a big series of tax hikes and spending cuts. welcome to "america live" i'm rick folbaum. >> i'm arthe arthel nevel. the president is expected to make remarks within the hour about the on going negotiations about the so-called fiscal cliff. we'll bring that live to you when it happens. sources are telling fox news that congress has figured out the tax part. the main bone of contention is at this point the spending. the white house wants new spending using tax hikes to prevent some of the severe budget cuts that also kick in in 11 hours from now. republicans argued that is just robbing pete tore pay paul. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live at the capitol following all of the bouncing balls. hey, mike. >> reporter: one concern for republicans as they look at this deal is what about spending cuts? where are the spending cuts? it sounds like they are
and spending plans he wanted for the second obama term. that outline is indeed the basis for the fiscal cliff deal that is now taking shape. here's my take. it's a lousy deal! trumka said, tax the rich, promise to cut spending and ignore the debt. looks like that is exactly what we're going to get. the republicans have accepted higher tax rates, rightly or wrongly, speaker boehner has okayed tax the rich. that part of the trumka plan in place. as for spending, the president will not touch medicare or medicaid. he suggests a minuscule trimming of social security and he wants $50 billion worth of new spending for infrastructure. he is very much in line with trumka's thinking on spending. and then there's the debt. the president wants a blank check to run it up as he pleases, no interference from congress with those pesky debt ceiling debates. no, he is following the trumka line again. ignore the trillions in new debt. let the grandkids play for heaven's sake. this is where we're headed with these fiscal cliff talks. in our desperation to avoid a crisis we put it off and actually make it worse.
